Surya
Surya
Description
In the Puranas, there are distinct and different scales in the hierarchy of deities. At the highest end of the spectrum there is the Divine Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara, often depicted as a single God having three heads. Surya occupies a much lower position. In the Vedas, Surya holds an eminent rank. He is one of the triad of Gods - Agni, Vayu and Surya - next in importance only to Indra. Gayatri, the most sacred verse of the Rig-veda, which is repeated every day by devout Hindus, is addressed to Surya. The verse invokes him to confer his splendour on, and stimulate the intellect of the worshipper. Surya's character as a luminary was always present in the minds of the Rigvedic poets. He is said to diffuse golden splendour. He rides in a golden chariot drawn by seven swift horses. Manu, the law-giver, Yamam the God of Death and the River Yamuna are some of his many children. The story as narrated in this book is based on "Markandeya Purana". How Surya was tricked into having two wives and how he ultimately lost his unbearably fierce effulgence, is the theme of this story.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
